A Rippa of a day!!

 Friday saw 2 Te Mahia school teams, one junior and senior team (10 tamariki in each) travel to Wairoa to partake in a Rippa Tournament at Lambton Square. Our tamariki played teams from Nuhaka, Kura Kaupapa, Wairoa Primary, and Frasertown. Both teams did extremely well winning some games, drawing others and losing by close margins. The senior team found their flow throughout the day, their last game being their best performance of the day. The junior team did extremely well especially as it was a first playing Rippa for some of our younger tamariki. Ka mau te wehi ngā tamariki o te kura o Te Mahia!!

Thank you to parents who came and supported our tamariki, cheering them on from the sidelines. A big thank you also to Matua Bernie, Wiggy and Anthony for coaching our Rippa teams on the day.

Definitely a great way to end the week and begin the long Queen's birthday weekend!
